After the birth of my second son back in November, my wife and I decided that we were done procreating, so I went under the scalpel a couple of days ago and got my plumbing disconnected. I was kind of nervous about the procedure at first, but it really wasn't much to it. The whole thing was over in about 20 minutes and I got to watch every tug and snip :thumbsup: . I'm under doctor's orders to take it easy for the next 2 weeks which means no cycling or any other working out until the 2nd week of February. It kind of works out because I plan on using the down time to change out my crank set, upgrade my shifter pods, and switch from mechanical to hydraulic disc brakes . My main worry is putting on extra weight over the next couple of weeks because I love to eat. Riding and working out helps me stay fit and keep my weight under control (while allowing me to eat like a pig). It will also be interesting to see if I notice any difference with the jewels once I get back in the saddle.
